Sama Learning aims to increase access and letter grades in STEM curricula

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 23, 2019 — (PRNewswire) — Sama Learning, based in the Capital Region, was awarded "Best Pitch" by a panel of 20 judges at the Capital Region ARVR Accelerator (CRARVR Accelerator) Demo Day held at the McClatchy New Ventures Lab in downtown Sacramento on Thursday, April 18, 2019. The announcement was made during a reception hosted by Five Star Bank.  Sama Learning uses virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) to provide personalized STEM lessons to students. This proprietary methodology has been piloted to university chemistry students and the result has been an improvement in one full letter grade for each student.  By going beyond textbooks and lectures, Sama Learning's platform seeks to increase diversity in STEM by providing engaging and fun lessons to communities that have less representation in higher education such as women and people of color.
